In this post we are going to discuss that how can we convert GeoTIFF to AAIGrid data format. GeoTIFF data is used in  software like BEAM and ER Mapper and  AAIGrid is a file format which is  mainly used in software like ESRI.

GeoTIFF is a public domain standard which allows georeferencing information to be embedded within a TIFF file. GeoTIFF files also includes map projection, coordinate systems and datums data to establish the exact spatial reference for the file.

AAIGrid or Arc/Info ASCII Grid is supported for read and write access, including reading of georeferencing transform and some projections. The projections support is quite limited. It is normally produced with the Arc/Info ASCIIGRID command.
